Brandenburg Ministry of Justice and for Europe and Consumer Protection, Potsdam-Golm Science Park and Aalto University organized the Brandenburg Innovation Camp to work on building active dialogue, inclusive innovation and blending of local knowledge systems to create the necessary momentum for tackling societal challenges. The camp was a part of the innovation camp series of the Smart-Up BSR project where the Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council is one of the project partners.

The Brandenburg Innovation Camp developed ideas on how science parks could promote interaction between businesses, civic society organizations and local community with the aim of addressing societal needs and promoting regional development.

The results of the camp will be utilised on the European-level helping to develop evidence-informed policy and decision-making.
